SSOE Spotlight Session: SSOE Road to Innovation

Tuesday, April 4 – Friday, April 14, 2017
SSOE Group
Various Offices / WebEx

Studies tell us that to remain a sustainable market leader in any industry, a company must find a way to foster and support innovation from its employees. From our founding, SSOE has always recognized this. However, the accelerated pace of change created by technology has made it necessary to remove barriers to innovation and invite everyone to participate. We took the first step to accomplish this by creating a senior-level innovation position, now held by SSOE’s Todd Alsdorf. Todd and a team stemming from a Hackathon group have been working on an innovation framework, web platform, and tools that will give employees a way to suggest innovations, participate in developing ideas, and maneuver through the business planning process to make their ideas a reality.
